Privacy policy

No warning without prior contact

Should any content or the design of individual pages or parts of this website violate third-party rights or legal provisions or otherwise cause problems under competition law in any form, we request, with reference to § 8 para. 4 UWG, an appropriate, sufficiently explanatory and quick message without cost note. I guarantee that the rightfully objected passages or parts of these web pages will be removed or extensively adapted to the legal requirements within a reasonable period of time without the need for you to involve legal counsel. The involvement of a lawyer for the purpose of a warning with costs for the service provider does not correspond to his real or presumed intention and would therefore represent a violation of § 13 para. 5 UWG, because of the pursuit of irrelevant objectives as the dominant motive for initiating proceedings, in particular an intention to achieve costs as the actual driving force, as well as a violation of the duty to minimize damages. Nevertheless, we will fully reject any costs incurred by you without prior contact and we reserve the right to file a counterclaim for violation of the aforementioned provisions.

content of the online offer

The author is constantly striving to update the internet presence and to provide users with diverse and correct information. However, he does not guarantee the topicality, correctness, completeness or quality of the information provided. Liability claims against the author, which refer to material or non-material damages, which have been caused by the use or non-use of the information provided or by the use of incorrect and incomplete information, are excluded in principle, unless the author is not demonstrably guilty of deliberate or gross negligence. All offers are subject to change and non-binding. The author expressly reserves the right to change, supplement or delete parts of the pages or the entire offer without separate announcement or to discontinue the publication temporarily or permanently.

References and links

In the case of direct or indirect references to external Internet sites (“links”), which are outside the author’s area of responsibility, a liability obligation would only come into force if the author is aware of the contents and it would be technically possible and reasonable for him to prevent the use of illegal contents. The author therefore expressly declares that at the time the links were created, the linked pages were free of illegal content. The author has no influence on the current and future design and content of the linked pages. Therefore, he hereby expressly distances himself from all contents of all linked/connected pages that were changed after the link was set. This statement applies to all links and references set within the author’s own Internet offer as well as to external entries in guest books, discussion forums and mailing lists set up by the author. For illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents and in particular for damages resulting from the use or non-use of such information, the provider of the page to which reference is made shall be solely liable, not the person who merely refers to the respective publication via links.

Copyright and trademark law

The author endeavours to observe the copyrights of the graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts used in all publications, to use graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts created by himself or to use licence-free graphics, sound documents, video sequences and texts. All brand names and trademarks mentioned within the Internet offer and, if applicable, protected by third parties are subject without restriction to the provisions of the respectively valid trademark law and the ownership rights of the respective registered owners. The mere mention of a trademark does not imply that it is not protected by the rights of third parties! The copyright for published objects created by the author himself remains solely with the author of the pages. Any duplication or use of objects such as diagrams, sounds or texts in other electronic or printed publications is not permitted without the author’s agreement.
